BandCountryRock

I'm a Mississippi girl living in Brooklyn. I love men, getting my heart broken, and writing songs about it. I land somewhere between Jon Bon Jovi and The Dixie Chicks. In short, I'm a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll. But nothing like the Osmonds, unless you count the dimples.

Biography

Southern-bred and Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Angie Atkinson's music career began when her marriage ended and it seemed like it was time to do something new. Angie grew up in Mississippi, a city girl at heart who brought the country with her when she moved to New York in 2009. Angie combines her metropolitan sophistication with her grassroots realness to create an alt-prairie-pop-rock sound that is uniquely her own. Some might consider her the beer-and-whiskey-drunk stepsister of P!nk and Taylor Swift. Whether playing acoustically on her ukulele or with her powerhouse band of incredible musicians backing her, Angie's vocals and lyrics cut through the bull malarkey and straight to the heart. Angie rocked CMJ in 2011 and played two successful acoustic tours last summer to promote her EP, "Double Or Nohtin'." She also has performed at two festivals sponsored by The New York City Road Runners and continues to play all the damn time around the Lower East Side and Brooklyn.
